I am looking for some new spots to bowfish this weekend. Just wondering if anyone is seeing many carp(or any other roughfish)

I was on Frances on Thursday & saw quite a few. In the southwest end of the lake about 5' from shore I saw 8 of them schooled up ranged from maybe 5 lbs.-10lbs. LOTS in the isolated pocket in the bay on the north side too.(Hope you have a good strong trolling motor! Lots of weeds/pads.

Good Luck!! L2f

Was out on Fox today and there was some monster carp movin' in the swallows, managed to shoot 2 buffaloes and 2 carp, of course i missed alot but had good action before the winds kick up. All fish shot were 4-5 lbs but some of the carp i saw had to be pushin' 20-30 lbs

Could you imagine our lakes having those numbers & sizes of walleyes, bass & northerns as we do carp? tongue.giftongue.giftongue.gif

Just got back from fox. Between the clouds, wind, and rain bowfishing was impossible. I did see some carp take from the shallows, so they where there.

Checked out some Cannon River spots today and the water is really dirty, making bow-fishing tough. I hit a small creek around Northfield and shot 5 carp, 2-3lbs before it got cloudy.

I think if you'd try Frances, you'd get quite a few. I could narrow down the spot if you would like. Are you familiar with Frances? There isn't much wind tomorrow & it will be out of the N.W., (all the better) should be a good day for it. cool.gif

Thats a little bit far out of my area but thank you for the help. I mostly go from shore after work locally(Farmington)for a couple hours and then hit the area lakes in the boat on the weekends. Thanks

I have been thinking about trying down by Frances, Rays, Tetonka, or Elysian. Maybe this weekend

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
